Yep.

Given that SKOS views of informal categorisation systems, eg. blogs, is
likely, I find this quite a realistic use case.

See
http://www.wasab.dk/morten/blog/archives/2004/09/01/skos-output-from-wordpress
...for some running code that emits SKOS from wordpress, an opensource 
weblogging system.

http://danbri.org/words/skos.php (eg. data) is my earlier
(RDF/N3) effort. Note that I have categories for some specific people,
for the general notion of people, and vaguer things like 'media',
'technology'...
